To show her gratitude to fans, the iconic actress has penned a letter (above). In the letter, White guarantees that even though the cast tends to joke around, there will be no mistakes during the live broadcast. A pretty gutsy prediction, but White is no novice to acting, so she should do just fine.

Niecy Nash and her colorful flower cover the new issue of JET magazine.

The actress is gearing up for the premiere of the second season of TVLand’s Soul Man on June 19. With a new book in bookstores around the globe, Nash has a lot to talk about. Check out a sneak peek below.

On being mistaken for Kym Whitley, Sherri Shepherd and Yvette Nicole Brown:

“It’s dangerous when we all have our curly hair on at the same time.”

On there being so few Black comedic actresses:

“People don’t ask 10 White women with blond hair how they feel— and there are a million of them— when they are compared to each other because it’s perceived as if they are all doing something different. But Black comedic actresses are compared because there are so few of us.”
